About the Area
We have many farm animals and pets; willing volunteers can help feed and tend to the sheep, or groom and help look after our many friendly horses and ponies.
However, the caravan is situated in a private spot so guests not interested in the farm or horses will be equally as happy as those that may be very keen on this aspect of the holiday.
From the riding school opposite we offer hacks in our beautiful countryside and indoor/outdoor lessons from a friendly team of instructors. Family rides are available. For those who have never ridden before we can offer part lessons followed by part gentle ride out.
Fully supervised children's half days at the stables can be arranged, to include a range of stable management instruction as well as riding.
